With Tom Moody back at the helm of the affairs, there is a clear Moody touch to the way Sunrisers Hyderabad have approached their retention and releases this year. They have cut the unwanted wood from the roster, but will that help? We’ll soon know.

IPL Retention 2021 | Talking points from KKR’s releases and retentions ft. Cummins-Narine and the Kuldeep puzzle 

Kolkata Knight Riders, for all the galaxy of stars, have been quite poor in the last two seasons of the IPL. KKR were one of the luckier sides last season with few games completely bottled up by opposition yet not making it into the final four speaks a story itself for the franchise.

IPL Retention 2021 | Talking points from RR’s releases and retentions ft. Smith, Curran and captain Samson

With a new captain comes huge responsibility but at the same time, comes immense pressure that Sanju Samson and the management have to handle after they released Steve Smith. That coupled with the fact that they have placed their trust in Unadkat, Miller while releasing Curran remains questionable.

IPL Retention 2021 | Talking points from RCB’s releases and retentions ft. Morris, Philippe and middle-order

Kohli and RCB threw a pleasant surprise last season by showcasing consistency in selection but welp, the Reds are back to their old ways again having released a ludicrous 10 players ahead of the mini-auction. Is it good? Bad? What could be the reason? We try to make sense of it here.
